lyrics

Hard to explain, everything changed since the days when I called you Lola
and in Frederick MD, where coffee ain’t free, I got a cup at Cafe Nola
Got a graduate job, I’ve been acting a slob, and I spent all my money on a girl
You know I’d move along, except singing this song is sure taking all the time in the world

When nothing feels right,
and you sit alone and turn out the lights,
wanna feel as though someone hears you cry,
I’ve had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day

When I was nine, taking my time, the sun was high and so were you
and then late in my teens I was traveling through scenes, glimpses of the past still rang true
now the city has lost a place in my heart it once easily occupied
now the scenery's changed, and except for the name, everything good just seems to have died

When nothing feels right,
and you sit alone and turn out the lights,
Wanna feel as though someone hears you cry,
I’ve had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day

I’m not sure tomorrow is gonna be better
I kinda felt yesterday was the same
but mother as sure as I’m writing this letter to you, well, its looks like rain
yeah it looks like rain
So bring on the rain

So we wait, and we wait, at the cafe til' late
So we wait, and we wait, at the cafe for as long as it takes tonight
